Abstract

Because of marked improvements in the early diagnosis and management of patients with congenital heart defects as well as the dramatic increases in surgical survival for patients undergoing correction of these defects, a large and growing population of survivors of congenital heart surgery present themselves for care to primary care pediatricians. This article highlights the need for primary care pediatricians to understand the common clinical problems they will see in this group of patients and what surgical strategies are used in the more complex defects.
